Join us as we present a game design in OpenSim that extends our Mars Expedition, a Grand Prize Winner in the Federal Virtual World Challenge. Our Immersive VR game provides challenges that stimulate contemplative practices as players face complicated and complex challenges for life on Mars.

Our research blends physical and virtual models on Mars with a game simulation kit, an AI-augmented mindset for a Semantic Web Ontology Language, and Red Queen processing for studying leadership challenges at Virtual Harmony.
